“Technical fleet management” as an aspect of fleet management refers to those measures and actions taken in order to monitor and maintain reliable operation of the vehicle, thus supporting fleet, workshop and drivers. Various on-board systems record and process the required data. Mobile data communication systems are available for remote monitoring.
